Grant to help addicted Md. inmates

The Washington County, Md., Health Department has been awarded $300,000 in federal funding to help drug- and alcohol-addicted inmates return to society.

The money, to be used over two years, assist former inmates in finding jobs, housing and substance abuse treatment.

It will focus on inmates at the Washington County Detention Center.

The program, part of the federal Second Chance Act, will also help inmates reconnect with their minor children.

Officials estimate the grant will help 196 people over the two-year period.
